Transcript 12 MONTROSE VOICE / JANUARY 30, 1987 TO FEVWH SILENT Cough Up, Says God The Innocent Bystander By Arthur Hoppe The Reverend Oral Roberts, who was told by a 900-foottall Jesus Christ to build a hospital, now says that God's ordered him to raise $4.5 million by March to keep it running. If he <:■ Roberts said, God I 0 will kill him. I stopped by God- for-President headquarters for a free cup of coffee and a chat with the campaign manager, the Reverend Roscoe Skamm. He said contributions were rolling in, thanks to an act of divine intervention. "You were visited by a 900-foottall Jesus Christ?" I asked. "No," he said, "but a 10-story-high giant taco did come to me one night." "Hey," I said, "you must eat at Speedy Gonzalez's Whole Enchilada Parlor, too. And this taco gave you campaign advice?" "No, it told me to build our Secular Humanist Detection Center," said Skamm. "It was God, himself, who got in on the campaign planning. He said we ought to start producing 30-second spots to get his views over to the voters, and he gave me 60 days to raise $10 million for tee-vee time." "Or he said he'd kill you?" "No, he said he'd kill anyone who didn't cough up." I nodded. "That's certainly an effective improvement on the fundraising technique he gave Oral Robers," I said. "Well, God's more emotionally involved in this one," said Skamm. "He's got his reputation on the line." "You think he's sorry he tossed his hat in the ring?" "Oh, no. He said again just the other day that he was sick and tired of every preacher in the country claiming they had his ear and his endorsement for president. That's why he's running him self. 'Cut out the middleman,' he says." "A good slogan, too," I said. "But do you think you'll make the deadline?' "Look at these mailers we're sending out," said Skamm, offering me a couple of samples. The first read: "Dear Concerned Voter: I need your help. Do you want to put me back in the schools? Or do you want the Commies, the militant homosexuals and the self-confessed secular humanists to take over our country? Do you want to send in $10, $25 or other (check one) today? Or do you want to fry in hell? (signed) God." "Fry in hell?" I asked. "No more Mr. Nice Guy," said Skamm. "Here's the follow up." It simply said, "Vaya con Dios— Second Notice." Skamm rubbed his hands. "I figure I ought to have that $10 million by a week from Tuesday," he said. "You ought to be ashamed of yourself," I said firmly, "claiming that God would threaten to kill people in order to raise funds. Who do you think you are. Oral Roberts? I hope nobody gives you a nickel." Skamm gave me a look. "You should keep in mind the motto of our little fund- raising project," he said. What's that?" I asked. "Ask not what God can do for you," he said, "ask rather what God can do to you." "On the other hand, here's a saw- buck," I said. "Can I have a receipt."

ARIES—Everyone should have someone like you for a friend this weekend You've got passion and compassion. You can light up the darkest places. Spread the glow! Let 'em know what love is! TAURUS—You want what you want, and that's all there is to it. With a little bit of imagination, you may get the material things. If you can control your need for control, you may have your emotional needs filled, too. GEMINI—You'll feel needed, loved, cherished. You'll feel like number one, king of the mountain, top of the heap. This could lead to self-centeredness, couldn't it? Not if you return all those feelings to the right person. CANCER—Work it out. You got over last week's hump, and now you're humpy and hungry again. All that energy needs an outlet. Take a very special person to a very private place, and together, you can work it out. LEO—Somebody's got you by the tail. Normally, you wouldn't mind that too much, but right now you have something important to prove. Show and tell what's in your mind and heart. VIRGO—Last week's feelings of unreality and haunting dreams have sharpened into a keen sense of reality and how to make the dreams work. Confusion's out, clarity's in. A new version of your old self is making you happy and attractive. LIBRA—Blending the masculine and feminine, the aggresive and submissive is your talent this weekend. You'll find yourself at ease in the most uncomfortable situations. You could make a lot of money, or a lot of love. Either one makes sense. SCORPIO—When an old love shows up out of nowhere, you'll know what to do and how to do it You're sure enough of yourself to know the decisions you make will be the right ones. SAGITTARIUS—You're able to take some very original ideas and use them wisely. Things that were hidden come to light. Old love and a new venture seem to go hand in hand this weekend. Pillow talk can be profitable. CAPRICORN—Have you seen your father, baby, standing in the shadows? Someone just out of sight watching what you're up to? You can take this feeling as guilt, or as admiration for you as a special person How'm I doin', Pop? AQUARIUS—Someone older, who could have a very powerful influence in your life, attracts you. There's a feeling of beginnings in the air. New things are within reach; reach out! PISCES—What happens when you combine passion with sincerity? You'll find out soon enough, since you'll be giving and taking plenty of each. It could turn out to be bigger than both of you. «19B7 MONTROSE VOICE «
